The purpose of the study was to determine the effect of Pranayam on selected body composition variables. Thirty male students of B.P.E. first year of CCS University, Meerut ,were randomly selected as subjects for this study. Subjects were divided into two groups i.e. one experimental group and one control group. The quantitative measurements of each subject were taken with the help of standard equipment, before and after the treatment period of twelve weeks. The selected Body Composition Variables were Body Fat (%), Lean Body Mass (kg), Body Water Content (%) and Basal Metabolic Rate (Kcl). All the test were administered in the Yoga Laboratory of the Institute. Paired ‘t’ test was applied to determine the effect of Pranayam on selected Body Composition Variables. The Paired ‘t’ test revealed that practice of Pranayam pranayama had significant effect on Body Fat Percentage (t = 5.47), Lean Body Mass (t = 9.65), Body Water Content (t = 17.24) and Basal Metabolic Rate (t = 9.410) against required tabulated value of 1.761 which showed significant effect of practice of Pranayam . On the basis of results following conclusions were drawn: 1. Significant effect was found on Body Fat Percentage. 2. Significant effect was found on Lean Body Mass. 3. Significant effect was found on Body Water Content. 4. Significant effect was found on Basal Metabolic Rate.
